Now my “left” head does not appear so much smaller anymore...












  I am a physical anthropologist who specializes in 3D-anthropometry and shape analysis. I’m interested in human variability, past and present, and how it relates to our evolution and dispersal. While this is mostly academic, there is also a practical side to it: Ergonomics. Anyone who has been squeezed into an airplane for 8 hours, cursing the designer for not making more comfortable seats knows what I mean. 3D-anthropometry can help make things fit better, whether it is a seat, a pair of jeans, or the glasses through which you may be reading this page…
